Texans 2013 Mock Draft: Final 7-Round Predictions for Houston

The Houston Texans are a well-built team that won 12 games last year. As a result, they have relatively few holes to fill; the key in the draft is to fill those holes with the right talent.

The Texans need a second wide receiver who can start day one, as well as another inside linebacker opposite Brian Cushing on the front seven. For that matter, an extra linebacker or two for depth, both outside and inside, will also be needed.

Minor additions include an extra offensive lineman and safety in the later rounds as well. If the picks fall just right, this could turn the Texans into a top team in the AFC easily.

For this mock, I looked primarily at need and best players available, but for day three picks in particular I tried to channel GM Rick Smith and tried to think of what players he might draft near the end.
